sherku: George Ezra

Juno snowed 
on Franklin 
found Gandalf 
singing so I 
just listened 
to the man


composed while cruising in Facebook and discovering on a snowy day
got hypnotized by the voice of George Ezra

ghazal: Weikert July 2014

There’s no wifi, points don’t matter
But before each meal
We pause to give thanks

Fallen tree diverted the trail
Along shaded rail line
Where folks gave thanks

Infant music box conjures
Ice cream, grass stained fun
And fire flies giving thanks

Intense or cursive the
Fire circle discussion
Solves enough to give thanks

Joy of sewing triumph fades
Quickly with news of three
Sleeping so well to give thanks

Juggling cans, crossing over
Monkey bridge where laurel
Line the path saying thanks

Composed in Weikert, PA

sherku: leaf dancing

Wind sock pegged
Straight out
Barely budding
Trees swaying
Stray leaf dances
Down the path

Lunch, next day
Her phone, here’s
Hoping she does
